Garden Museum London Events & Parties

Garden Museum London is a truly unique venue to host your next social gathering or party. A formerly abandoned medieval church, this space has been transformed into a museum dedicated to the art, history, and design of gardens and has creativity hiding in every corner. It’s nestled on the banks of the Thames with views across the river to the Houses of Parliament; a sight that will impress any guest or host.

The beautifully designed Sackler Garden created by award-winning Dan Pearson greets guests and provides a striking area for a drinks’ reception or intimate alfresco dinner. 

Moving indoors, the Nave is the grand, main event space. Vaulted ceilings, soaring pillars, and stained-glass windows show the building’s history and create a dramatic backdrop to dinners or parties. Hire of the Nave comes with use of the Sackler Garden, to make use of both indoors and outdoors, while the Sackler Garden can be hired as a standalone space.

Venue Testimonials

Garden Museum is amazing venue when it comes to wedding in London. From outside you got beautiful view on the Westminster and Big Ben. Inside you got access to massive hall which on the evening turn to be dance floor. Fabulous place for wedding in London.

Miracle M ·

The museum has been beautifully integrated into the redundant church building, and its spacious layout allows a certain spirituality to remain. [...] All the staff I spoke to were helpful, above and beyond the usual.

Martin M ·

Lovely rooms for events and conferences, there is even a kitchen and a modern concept cafe. Beautiful courtyard where the rain garden has been designed by Dan Pearson.
